The cosmetic industry is constantly on the hunt for new trends and brands are always evolving their skincare lines with the latest in trending ingredients. CBD has become a trending ingredient in skincare, but it seems to be sticking around a lot longer than other passing trends. What’s behind this popular ingredient and what should you be looking out for on labeling?
Celebrities like Martha Stewart are pushing the CBD narrative with her own CBD-infused cosmetic range, and other celebrities are public about their approval for these types of products. And with this surge in CBD products for your skin, it’s only natural that you are curious to try it for yourself. But before you satiate your curiosity for CBD cosmetics, there are a couple of things you should know about what’s behind the label.
Consider the following before investing in a CBD skincare product:
Consider These Keywords
- Hemp extract
- Hemp CBD
- Third-Party Lab Tested
All the above-mentioned keywords are a good indicator that you are on the right track for a quality CBD product. But what else do you have to look out for? You need to be prepared to dig a little deeper. Don’t worry, it’s easier than it sounds.
Cannabis sativa oil and hemp seed oil are not necessarily the same thing as CBD oil. Often you might find a product priced well below the average price line. Naturally, you’ll think you’ve hit the jackpot, but don’t be too quick on that checkout button. Hemp seed oil is different from CBD oil in that it is extracted from the seeds of the plant, rather than the leaves and flowers.
While hemp seed oil has its own wellness benefits, it does not contain cannabinoids like CBD on its own. So, if you purchase hemp seed oil alone it does not automatically mean it contains any CBD. Hemp seed oil is high in omega content and is therefore typically greasier and thicker than CBD oil. It is a brilliant and popular base oil for CBD products where the hemp seed oil is then infused with pure cannabidiol (CBD). A base oil, also known as a carrier oil, helps deliver the CBD to the body. Always check a product’s ingredients and lab reports to make sure you know what you’re buying.
How Much CBD is in the Product?
Another important box to tick when checking CBD cosmetic products is the actual CBD content.
Determining the amount of CBD a product contains can be done by reading up on the company’s third-party reports. All of Canzon CBD cosmetic products have a third-party report on the product page. If a company does not offer you this type of transparency, it is in your best interest to move on along and avoid their products.
For instance, our Super Hydrating CBD Moisturizer contains an effective amount of CBD, 100mg of supercritical CO2 extracted CBD per 50ml. But don’t just take our word for it, because you can check their easy-to-find independent lab reports for yourself.
This brings us to the next point, the type of extraction used.
Check the Extraction
Supercritical CO2 extraction is the standard for premium CBD skincare products. This is because it keeps the CBD cannabinoid’s integrity without leaving any traces of harmful substances or chemicals. But it can also be costly for companies which is why some companies on the hunt for profits might forgo the safer and more effective extraction methods for cheaper (and more harmful) alternatives.
CBD’s all-round supportive wellness properties mean that it may have started out as a trend, but it is here to stay in the skincare and beauty industry. This is also why there is such a wide variety of CBD products to choose from. Whether you want a serum, anti-ager, or muscle reliever, you’ll be able to find a CBD- infused product geared for exactly that.
But we have another little tip to help you decide which popular CBD cosmetic to choose.
Consider the Supportive Ingredients
What other ingredients are the companies using to enhance their products’ efficiency? If you are seeking intense hydration for dry skin, you might want to look out for a product infused with hydrating Aloe Vera. Not only is aloe vera a popular ingredient that has been around for decades, but it is great for people that have sensitive skin too. If you are looking for a hand lotion to get you through dry skin in harsh winters, then look out for a CBD hand lotion like this one that is infused with rich Shea Butter. Shea Butter is a tried and tested ingredient in many moisturizers, and is a favorite ingredient for many people looking for a hand moisturizer.
And what about all those anti-aging products that purport such effective results? If you want an effective product, then check out an anti-aging cream that is made with supportive ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid and retinol. Not only do they provide powerful protection but, combined with the supportive wellness qualities like CBD, they are against premature aging. If you’re seeking the best in anti-aging, you might want to check out this serum that uses two types of Hyaluronic acid, coconut oil and CBD to provide the best trio in anti-aging ingredients.
And there you have it, the answer to why CBD is so popular in cosmetics: because it supports your skin’s health. Unlike most trends, this one will likely stick. But, be sure to buy a premium product from a brand that you can trust. And most importantly, don’t be shy to ask for the company’s third-party reports. You want to invest in your skin’s health, right? So be sure your CBD cosmetic not only contains CBD but is free from harmful substances as well.
